For those fortunate to have or have had loving parents; life can be a treasure.
Our parents are suppose to care for us, protect us, teach us and love us unconditionally.
In a perfect world, that would be correct.
And in a perfect world, as a child of theirs, we are suppose to honor them.
Honor means to have high respect and to hold in esteem.
But this is not a perfect world and not everyone has had the good fortune to have those kind of parents, nor those kind of children.
What Else Can We Do?
If your one of the fortunate ones, then consider yourself blessed.
If not, then try to remember forgiveness and acceptance of others.
Not everyone is equipped or conditioned to care, protect, teach or even love.
There is more than one way to honor someone.
Find that way for yourself, with God’s permission and be accepting of it.
There isn’t anything that the Good Lord doesn’t already know,
and He is mindful of your heart.
The Bible Says
Honor your father and mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
1 Corinthians 12:14b
For the children ought not to lay for the parents, but the parents for the children.
When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take care of me.
